Bordetella holmesii is a fastidious Gram-negative rod that was initially identified in 1995. It causes bacteremia, predominantly among patients with anatomical or functional asplenia. We report four cases of B. holmesii bacteremia in asplenic children occurring within the last 4 years. In all cases, B. holmesii was misidentified by an automated system as Acinetobacter lwoffii.
